The Lyrics

Winters like this here at the Shrieking Sixties evoke certain dreams of the summer, leisure, sunshine and simple, easy living.
If I had a hammock
I'd sleep in it the morning
I'd sleep in the the evening
All wintertime through
I'd sleep it through snowstorms
I'd sleep it through frost nights
I'd sleep in it like bears and badgers
All wintertime through

If I had a ball
I'd play it in the morning
I'd play it in the evening
All wintertime through
I'd play it like baseball
I'd play it like softball
I'd play it like soccer and tennis
all wintertime through

If I had a song
I'd spoof it in the morning
I'd spoof it in the evening
All wintertime through
I'd spoof out humor
I'd spoof out a satire
I'd spoof out parodies here at Am-I-Right
All wintertime through

Well I've got a hammock
And I've got a ball
And I've got a song to spoof
All wintertime through
It's the hammock of tain' easy
It's the ball of fitness
It's the song of having fun to all us brothers and sisters
All wintertime through!

Susanna - Nicely done! I can't wait to hear this recorded by the iconic 60s folk group Peter, Paul, and Susanna! ;D

Where is global warming when we need it? A nice reminder that better times and weather are on the way.

Hammock in a snowstorm? I liked the intro better ...
Here in Turtleville, the high today was 26C (78F), low tonight 18C (65F), and there's a hammock on the balcony. So, if you ever get tired of those Finnish winters, Susanna, just Finnish your trip here, and we'll swing! ;-D
